Black Headlines First Extreme Challenge in Iowa City

      Jason Black will put his undefeated record on the line Sept. 13 when he takes on Marcel Perigord in the main event of Extreme Challenge 53 in Iowa City.
      It will be the first MMA event held in Iowa City.
      "We’ve had Extreme Challenge events in just about every city in Iowa," said promoter Monte Cox. "But we have never been able to find the right place in Iowa City… and it isn’t because we haven’t looked. Finally, we found a sponsor that wanted to support the event."
      The show will be held in the Gateway Center parking lot, which is in front of sponsor Big Ten Rentals.
      Black, who is 16-0-1, is a member of Team Extreme and trains with the Miletich Fighting Systems in Davenport, Iowa. He is the TKO (formerly UCC) welterweight champion and is generally considered among the top 170-pounders in the world. He won the Extreme Impact world title in London, England, a little over a month ago.
      Perigord is from Fort Hood, Texas, and has a Tae Kwon Do background and a year of MMA training… he is 1-0 as a professional.
      In a feature bout, former Iowa Hawkeye wrestler Ben Uker will return to Iowa City for his pro debut. Uker will face Dan Anderson of Des Moines, who sports a perfect 3-0 pro mark.
      Other fights for the show are being put together, but will consist of top amateurs from around the Midwest.
      Gates open at 6 p.m. with the first bout at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at numerous locations — Sam’s Pizza, The Sports Column, McInnerney’s and Big Ten Rentals… all in Iowa City.
      For more information, contact Monte Cox at 563 505-0075.

From the event’s promoter:

Ultimate Submission Showdown

The UFC was created to compare all styles of martial arts. It became clear that the advantage of the grappler was tremendous. Now, everyone trains in some form of grappling and that has leveled the playing field. Today’s events, consist of overgrown athletes relying on punches and kicks to pummel their way through victory. It’s become a comparison of athletes, more than a comparison of styles! Fans miss the early days because now they rarely see a match end with a classic submission move…

From the creator of the UFC:

Eight of the top grapplers in the world will compete in a single elimination tournament that will determine the world’s best submission fighter. There is NO TIME LIMIT. Competitors can choose to wear whatever outfit they want. ALL finishing moves will be permitted whether it’s chokes, neck-cranks, arm-locks, knee-locks, ankle-locks, foot-locks, takedowns, etc…
The best representatives of wrestling, jiu-jitsu, judo, submission-fighting, shoot-fighting, and sambo are being invited. IT’S TIME TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

See it live at the James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance, CA,
OCTOBER 11, 2003.
